A new sensory trail is to be built at the Wyre Community Discovery Centre. The sensory trail will run through an easily accessible area of the beautiful Wyre forest and is intended to engage all five senses, sound, sight, smell, touch and maybe even taste!

Grow with Wyre, who are running this project as part of the Landscape Partnership Scheme, are opening the doors of the new Discovery Centre on Wednesday 27th October to hold a community consultation day and would love to see anyone who might have an idea, opinion or just curiosity about the new trail. No idea is too wacky not to be considered and the day promises to be a fun way to enrich the local community and environment.

Your ideas will be collected and presented by Louise Palmer - Garden Designer, who will the incorporate them as much as possible into an overall design plan. No garden experience is necessary to have your say.

Your ideas will be presented during a second consultation day later in the year.

As Godfrey Jones - Community Representative for Grow With Wyre commented: 'We are really excited about what ideas may be generated during these consultations. It's not often that you have an opportunity to design something from scratch and we hope that the trail will be delighting the senses of generations to come!'

There are morning and afternoon consultations planned and booking is essential. You can reserve your place by calling 01905 533831. The day commences at 10 and concludes at 3.
